The Travelling Archive is two of us: Moushumi Bhowmik, singer and writer, and Sukanta Majumdar, sound recordist and sound artist. We live in Calcutta (Kolkata) and have been travelling across eastern India and Bangladesh and also in parts of London for over 12 years, working with various aspects of sound, listening and documentation.
In 2013 we produced a sound and moving image work entitled Footsteps of Sound for an exhibition at Foundacion Botin, Santander, based on early sound recordings in India. The name comes from a song we learned on the road, which goes like this: “A sound rises from the mridanga drum/I hear its footsteps/It stirs my heart/I feel in me that rumble and roll/Why, o why did I hear its call?”"
